NIAS-KNAW calls for fellowship applications

23 January 2017

The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS), an institute of the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences, is opening the annual call for fellowship applications. This is an opportunity for those who wish to spend a period of time during the academic year 2018/19 to conduct research as a part of the NIAS community in Amsterdam.

Individual and Theme-group Fellowships

There are two kinds of fellowships that can be applied for: 

  • Individual fellowships 
    An individual fellowship is for scholars who wish to work on an individual project for 5 or 10 months.  
  • Theme-group Fellowships.
    Theme-group Fellowships are for scholars who wish to work together with colleagues on a particular theme. They consist of up to five scholars, half from the Netherlands, the other half from abroad.
